Championing Wellness through our Program of Health Heroes (HH)
This is a unique initiative to impact our rapidly growing community of members ready to adopt Wellness best practices, receive mentoring and attend dedicated coaching sessions. Special interest groups to match Health Heroes with those looking for help are effective platforms that at times get facilitated by Wellness Doctor Patrons to support health and wellbeing on a sustained basis.
We have categorized HH in three groups:
1) those that demonstrate commendable reversal of acute or chronic disease processes and outstanding crisis management with sustained long stretches of sound health based on preventive care techniques, lifestyle modifications or following research guided emerging novel best practices.
2) those maintaining a good health with healing power and aware of best practices, trends, tech tools and research on wellness.
3) those battling health challenges of variable magnitude and ready to take the leap of change, and later inspire others with their wisdom, learning and resilience.
These HH are truly the Heroes who remain focused on achieving their goals and are source of inspirations and motivation for a healthy change. Most of them collaborate with physicians and practitioners as applicable, to have a meaningful recovery or healing that can be scientifically validated and purportedly evidence based. We are working diligently to build processes around this to improvise and scale this HH Project.
These HHs constitute a big pillar in the Wellness Support Group along with the team of doctors. Some HHs are recommended by their Doctors based on clear understanding that sharing their stories would benefit the community. And, what a great combination it is for our community to get best of experience and advice from doctors as well as health heroes.
The 1-20-100 metrics of transformation.
Through a bunch of initiatives that include role play, knowledge dissemination, mentoring, etc., It is estimated that 1 HH should be able to directly impact 10 community members. With 100 HH, as many as 1000 could be impacted over a defined period (12 months and more). The aim is to transform the health of community members through various tools and platforms. Following the HH Workshop for Transformation and Impact, a series of quarterly workshops to be lined up create more Health Heroes in the Community across SF Bay Area and beyond.
